Julie Tague

Jr/Sr High School Family and Consumer Science Teacher

Hi--I'm Julie Tague! I have been the 7-12 Family and Consumer Sciences instructor at Manson-Northwest Webster since 1997.

My husband Mark and I live in Manson and have 3 grown children, 2 granddaughters and 2 dogs. I love to cook, make greeting cards, read, play the piano, travel and spend time with my family.


I was raised in Manson and graduated from Manson High School in 1977. I then attended North Park College in Chicago, majoring in music, but finished my Bachelor of Science degree at Iowa State with a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education (previously called Home Economics Education). I also have 5-12 Health, Middle School Science, and Multi-Occupations teaching endorsements.


The classes that I currently teach at MNW include:

  • 7th Grade Exploratory FCS

  • 8th Grade Exploratory FCS

  • FCS Foundations

  • Stress Management

  • Culinary Arts I: Food Fundamentals

  • Culinary Arts II: Advanced Foods (We have a student-run restaurant, the Autumn/Springtime Grill, in this class)

  • Food and Nutrition

  • Child Development

  • Design

  • Introduction to Hospitality (for MNW and ICCC credit)

I am also the adviser for the MNW FCCLA chapter. (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) We operate the Cougar Cafe, a small coffee shop/restaurant, in the library every Friday, as well as do other activities and service projects to build leadership skills.
